A, B, C for varied diet

You have probably heard many people talking, nagging and nagging about eating a more varied diet? But what does that actually mean? And why is it so important? Is it important?

The plate model 2.0
If you think about varying what you put on your plate, preferably for breakfast, lunch and dinner, you will get a wider spectrum of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. The result? Of course, you reduce the risk of any kind of deficiency.

How do you do then? One trick is to eat more colorful foods because different vegetables provide different vitamins. You get vitamin C, K and A, for example, via green leafy plants, cabbage plants and kiwi. Vitamin D, B12 and calcium are often found in various types of dairy products.

If you eat fish and shellfish, you get, among other things, iodine, selenium, vitamin D and vitamin B12. And if you put meat or chicken on the plate, B vitamins, phosphorus and selenium are added, while venison also gives you the important iron.

What do I do when life gets in the way?
In a perfect world, you might have time to both shop, cook and think about eating varied food. So what do you do when the kids have to be picked up from daycare, the work project is completed, or the drink with the Tinder date is on the schedule? During certain periods or occasions in life when your diet becomes more one-sided, it can be good to add different types of food supplements in the form of vitamins or minerals.
